Watchful Moments

I love watching you, little one, in the quickly passing moments of these days.

Those long lashes on beautiful sleeping eyes…

The smile on your lips as you unlatch from my body with your tummy full and content…

And the giggles as you play with your daddy.

Hearing you “sing” with us during church,

even though the attention of those around us makes me feel awkward.

My heart is full when you reach for your brother or sister, your big eyes focused joyfully on their faces.

And when your fingers stretch toward my mouth, reaching for a kiss on your hand…

or stop short, clutching at my clothing as if trying to keep me close and within your grasp.

Your energy and enthusiasm for exploring your world

inspire me and open my eyes again to the wonder around me.

These beautiful moments with you remind me again of all the beautiful moments

that I have been blessed to enjoy three times now.

And I want to stretch my mind, my memory, my soul, to remember everyone one.

I love being wife to my sweetie, mama and teacher to my three wonderful children, and friend to people near and far. I love to express myself through words. I blog to connect with others and so that someday, hopefully, my kiddos will understand who their mama was...way back when.
